So he.decided lo. build n i ,, road for keeps up Ihc side of the .J -mountain to his home. His neifih- rf bore', understandably, were a llt- · It? skeptical, und he wont iit It. «·. on his own.. · · «t ' H" decided It should lit! of .stoncn H 'ojt such $!ze us "to accommodntc ._ ' gasoline-powered vehicles, 1 and be « '· put down to slay. That's what he '"··; had in mind when he placed, each · ' .'.iionc, first up the east side of tho ···' cleared rltrhl-of-wii.v, and then uo :'.' tjie, wcsl fide.

Many of ' . them he drugged behind a horsq with a chain. Others 1 he pulled I Won* on a'slcrt. Each slonc was i placed by hand. Duncan started nt ''··'W*' bottom nnd worked up the · eftil tide, until he sol to the lop ··· of the mountain--then he started at the Bottom fisnln nnd placet) all the clones up Ihc west ultlc. "5 The length of the (railway is H little · over one-half m i l e -- t o - t h e hWorlBt driving over It today H . secins much further, and lo the rfujn who built II, Ihe distance must have seemed even longer 33 · I t IB.nil "all-wcnlhor". route, he M,vfi, and is passable cxeojit when liiis covered with Ice.

About two yctirs ago Lynn M. Chcmell of Ihc Arkansny Broile'r Hatchery started a chlclt- cn-raising Industry ntop the mountain, and (odny the "highway" Is rough, but .Mill passable ;and used daily. H is a common t h i n g . f o r thousands of chicks to . be carted up and down Ihc hill- some of the rocks have been ' mashed down i n t o sliclit dcprcs- · slons by Ihc constant wcarinp; and the weight. "" When it became evident to all that the road to Iho m o u n t a i n top was'entirely usable, the neighbors joined- Duncan, and another strip ·north of his home'was built. As fcir as Duncan, who buill his Ferguson Would Break With The Communists Sever Diplomatic Relations, Senator Of Michigan Says Washiliston-M'J-Sonator Kcrgti- son (It-Mich) called today foi immediate severance of diplomatic relations with Russia and all her Kiilcllllc nations. "We should break of. relations until these Commjnlsl.. learn how to live properly in the free world's family of nations," Ferguson said. U'he Michigan lawmaker expressed his vieU's in commenting on reports--confirrred by the Slate Department yesterday--that the United States is reviewing the iiucjilion of whether to close all American embassies in Russian s a t e l l i t e countries. "We should close them all rishl, b u t . v/e should j(n f u r t h n and SLVcr ail displnmatic relations w i t h the satellite Iron Curtain ns- tlons'and Russia itself," Ferguson said. "We should demand cm- hassles and consulates all those countries m a i n t a i n in the United Stales be shut down immediately." Senators Sparkman ( D - A l a ) . Morse (R-Ore) and If. Alexander Smith ( R - N J ) said the idea of Committee Approves UMT Plan For Six Months Training, Service In Reserve Washington -.(A') - A universal m i l i t a r y Iraininn plrni. under which trainees would not have to go into Ihn regular armed services without special congressional action, was approved by the House Armed Services Committee yester- fliiy. Committee official}; said the group agreed in closed session on six months' t r a i n i n g for Ifl-year- olds followed by seven find nne- h a l t years in the reserve. The Pentagon had recommended t h a t trainees automatically serve 18 months in the regular services after their training. Instead, the committee adopted an a m e n d m e n t , by Chairman Vinson (D-Ga) to require congressional approval for regular service. The committee 'continued polnt-by-point study of UMT to dyy, A completed measure is to b presented to the House later th: month. A principal point yet unsettle is when UMT would start. Th committee, can write in a spccifJ date or leave it to the Pcntagoi The five-man commission tha drew up the UMT program 'fo Congress did not estimate who its proposed t r a i n i n g of some 800, 000 youths yearly could start. Another main point to- cidcd is how large the progran should be. The committee can accept the 800,000 figure or leave i to military authorities. Vinson sail he would propose a starling ceil ing of aroJnd 00,000.

Ferguson said he hnd. concluded that "our embassies in Russia rnri these Red - dominated countries arc not f u n c U n n i n g as Rinbassics at all In the usual pensp." .Up said American personnel slalioncd in those nations "actually are the prisoners of Communism and can't soi'vo effectively in any I 'listening pnsl' e n n a c i t y .

A .Senate Subcommittee on In| Icrnal Security reported last nifihl l that an uncontrolled flood of Com- S munist propaganda is pourjng into this country, some of it through diplomatic channels, and f i n d i n g Us way into labor unions, universities and other institution*. S e n a t o r McCarran (U-Ncv), chairman nf the subcommittee, said congressional efforts to control this flood "are bo : nt? thwarted In bruc measure by refusal of the Slate Department lo require propagandists - in the embassies and legations to label t h e i r literature as required by the foreign agents registration act." This act dors not prohibil distribution of Red propaganda in the U.S., but il requires t h a t it be properly labeled as to its source;.

She plnn.s to seek Jin "irnmfrtialc" divorce from Ernrst Ted Slnuffor and "resume my life where I Icfi it cifiht months ago." Thp screen benuty married Slnuffor, former band lender who now runs n nighl club iiv Acapnl- co. Mexico, here last June. She said last nifihl: "Actually it really never was a marriage. I believe t h a t Ted were both f r i g h t f u l l y lonely and it seemed at the t i m e tlyit in one another we had found what we were looking for. I, at least, was mistaken." W a s h i n g t on-f/l')-A s u r v c showed today the government taken legal action to'collcct abo "·.4,875,000 from 15 storage fin- in connection with alleged shor agcrs of grains and other far oroduets stored under price S.U port programs. In addition, the government h: gon.c to court to recover .$177,()( from firms which, it says, failc to deliver grains of the grade 11 government bought from th,em fc an overseas supply program. Furthermore, legal action is b ing considered in connection 12 other cases of shortages. Th amounts involved have not bee dctcrminpd. Possible shortages in 20 olhi elevators and warehouses are bi ing investigated. Great differences of opinio "rcvail as to the exlcnt of fin losses. Some members of congrcr slonal committees invcstigatii Ihc shortages and the way th Agriculture Department has ha died its grain storage program predict the losses will run int many millions of dollars. Secretary of A g r i c u l t u r e Bran non says he expects Ihc total to b f a r less than five million dollar: probably less t h a n one million. Brannan estimates total losse ·vill be less than one-twentieth one per cent of the total volum '·f commodities handled by com nicrcial storage concerns. Three Claisei The survey shows that losse and sus|)ccted losses f a l l into thre general classes: conversion, shrink ages and f a i l u r e of purchasec grain to measure up to grader paid for. The conversion cases are th ones that have drawn the mos criticism. They m a i n l y involve usi of government grain by .storagi firms for speculative purposes The concerns sold the grain in th belief they could buy it back late at a lower price and thereby mak a profit. The 14 pending court case charge conversion of governmen grain to privale use. Four of thcs' cases, involving $2,028,400 ii wheat and grain sorghums, an against Texas concerns. Two, in volving beans, wheat, barley and grain sorghums valued at $775,000 are against Colorado 'irms Three cases involving $304,00( worth of wheat, corn and soy beans, arc against Ohio firms; twi involving $327,000 worth of corn are against Illinois firms; one in volving $13,000 worth of corn 1 aaginst a Nebraska concern; on claiming 565,000 for corn is again; a Georgia f i r m ; one involving $225,000 in barley is against a Cali fornia concern; and one involving 526,000 in wheat is against a Kan sas company. T h e Agriculture Dcparlmcn says that most of the 20 case: being investigated may involvi shortages arising out of norma shrinkage or deterioration o grain while in storage, rather thai conversion to private use. The department says its claim, against such losses will probabl.\ be settled without litigation. 1 ON Hit till*!! from Ihc hospital, H.
